The 17th Annual Conference for Management Accounting Research (ACMAR) is a conference that takes place at WHU in Vallendar, Germany. At the beginning of March every year more than 140 international researchers and accounting scholars accept the Institute's invitation. 

The conference offers the opportunity for presenting management accounting research in parallel sessions and finding out what colleagues in the field are working on. ACMAR also provides a friendly and sociable platform for meeting colleagues in management accounting research, instigating joint research projects, and generally keeping in touch.

In addition to the parallel sessions (with and without discussant), our keynote speakers will present their insights into current trends in management accounting practice and research. Previous keynote speakers include Thomas Ahrens, Christopher Chapman, Wai Fong Chua, Matthew Hall, Frank Hartmann, Ranjani Krishnan, Kari Lukka, Teemu Malmi, Michal Matějka, Martin Messner, Sven Modell, Dieter Pfaff, Stefan Reichelstein, Karen Sedatole, Naomi Soderstrom, Wim A Van der Stede, Sally Widener, Marc Wouters, and Anne Wu, among others.

The 9th ACMAR Doctoral Colloquium will take place in conjunction with the conference from March 4 - 5, 2020. The Colloquium’s objective is to provide an opportunity for doctoral students from various countries to discuss their research and work in progress with an experienced faculty.

We look forward to welcoming you to Vallendar in March 2020!
